Changing Hatred into Love - Dhammapada Verses 3 to 6

by Padmavajra

The second talk in Padmavjara's wonderful series on the Dhammapada, the most popular of early Buddhist texts. All of the Buddha's core teachings are here - held in heart and mind there's more than enough in the Dhammapada to take us as far in our practice as we can imagine, and then on beyond...

This material is intended for use with the Dharma Training Course for Mitras (see our 'Study' section, year three).

Talk recorded at Padmaloka Retreat Centre, 2007

This talk is part of the series The Dhammapada - the Buddha's Way of Truth.
